Public schools lack proper fire extinguishers
by Mindy Aguon
Guam - The island's public schools are lacking properly serviced and working fire extinguishers. In a letter to the fire chief, Education Suruhanu Dominic Terlaje has asked that the Guam Fire Department provide a list of corrective measures the Department of Education must take to rectify the problem.
Terlaje noted that the annual service date for the extinguishers at P.C. Lujan Elementary School and J.Q. San Miguel Elementary School had both been expired during inspections held last month.
The suruhanu discovered that not only were the fire extinguishers expired but they had also not been re-serviced. Terlaje has asked GFD to indicate the department's determination of fire extinguishers that are expired and that are currently installed and provided in public school classrooms and campuses.
